Yes I have to agree with you Chip.  I have the eye phone, and found several
Aps assessable for downloading, and listening to music.  Voriecon has some
really good rates.

Hi Bruce,


I changed the subject line to better reflect your question.


I've seen Sally and William (and others I think) speak very well of their
I-phones.  I believe they will do all the things you mentioned (I'm hoping
some I-phone owner will confirm this).


However, it's my understanding you'll be paying around $100 a month for the
plans needed to do this (need an I-phone owner again); this is what my
friend has to pay for hers anyway.  She has the unlimited data plan, and if
you're going to be listening to streaming media such as internet radio a
lot, you'll need it.


I don't know what the up front cost will be, a few hundred dollars, but it's
really nothing compared to a multi-year contract at a $100 a month.


I just don't use a cell phone that much where I want to spend that much
money on one.  And, for internet use, I far prefer a laptop to a phone.


My preference would be to sign up for a plan which gives you a cell modem
for a laptop for your internet anywhere access (they give you a little card
or USB device for your laptop which is a cell modem), and then get an
inexpensive cell phone separately.  


I get away with one of the pay-as-you-go cell phones with no speech (track
phone or virgin mobile), and it costs almost nothing.  T-mobile is now
offering a pay-as-you-go plan (no contract), and you can buy a phone like
the haven which has speech.  so, if you don't feel you could use a prepaid
phone by touch without speech, you could get your phone service cheaply
through t-mobile.  perhaps others now offer pay-as-you-go plans, I haven't
looked into it.  such plans though are almost always cheaper, usually *much*
cheaper, than a traditional yearly contract cell phone plan, with a high
monthly fee (virgin mobile's is 18 cents a minute).


I hope others will chime in with their experience, and there are plenty of
sites on the internet for the blind, which offer reviews of cell phone

What is the best device for someone who want's to listen to radio stations
on the internet, tex,and make a limited amount of calls.  Of course must be
speech friendly. The information you post is very informative.
